Re: hardware/optimizations for a download-webserver
Thanks for your advice -- seems i have been too chicken-hearted.
Summary: Don't bother with tuning the server and don't even think about
setting up a cluster for something like this - definitely overkill. ;o)
That's what i'll do ;-)
However the 50/150 concurrent requests are a guess (best i can get for now)
What do you think is the request-limit with a
Pentium IV 2 GHz, 1GB RAM, 100Mbit, IDE-disk ?
Thinking of the expected 50KB/sec download rate i calculated a
theoretical maximum of ~250 simultaneous downloads -- am i right ?
What is the practical throughput with a 100Mbit (non-realtek) NIC ?
